    Lightbulb Multiple links from One Page to Several Pages on another Domain?


    Anyone have any experience trying several links, say 6-8, to various pages on another domain but all from the same page on the first domain?

    Any negative effect? It's something I've not tried before but I have an opportunity to try it from a few domains with good PR on the pages I'd be linking from.

    I was hoping to give a SERPs boost to a target site by trying several deeplinks and a homepage link from each of the linking sites. All follow links and mixed anchor texts of course...

    Any thoughts guys? Would love to know if anyone has tried it or already knows the outcome. Yes I did try using the search box before asking.

    Hi there,

    IMHO - it depends (don't you hate that answer?)

    Where will the links be placed? There could be a problem if all the links are from the homepage (blogroll, partners, footer/header links) as it will be seen as spam (or paid links) Now if the pages you want to link to are relevant to each other (one completes the other, are on the same topic etc) and the linking page is a blog post/internal page on the same (or relevant topic) you should be OK. I have done this with guest posts and Squidoo/Hubpages posts. I can't say there was a major SERP boost but it worked fine in terms of PR and link history for the internal pages.

    Now, if you can't connect all the pages you want to link to in a way that makes sense, it will raise a few eyebrows so I wouldn't recommend it.

    Hope this helps.

    I will be honest and will say that I don't have experience with eccomerce sites. But still 80 links from a homepage (from a different domain?) seems a bit much. Maybe if it is another ecommerce or it lists products (say best selling) but still 80 dofollow links seems quite a lot.

    Ok, I just checked back, and he has updated the site.

    54 externals, and 40 internals.

    Thanks Guys,

    I thought my question had sunk off the board without an answer so your comments much appreciated.

    Maybe I'll try homepage to homepage links then an internal page to the deeplinks (a bit of a foot in both camps).

    This method works very well if the links are contextual or framed properly, and the site(s) linking out have good trust value. The fewer external links the more link juice is passed on.
